Guardians of Time Trilogy
The Guardians of Time Trilogy is a series of novels written by Marianne Curley. The plot of the trilogy consists of the Guardians of Time (the Guard), trying to protect the past, present, and future by traveling into the past to thwart their enemies, the Order of Chaos (the Order), who are trying to change past events to give themselves more power.
The story is set in Angel Falls (fictional, not the real Angel Falls) which is directly above the ancient city of Veridian. The town is set in Australia, somewhere in the outback or a national park, not far from Sydney, according to the coordinates given in The Dark. This town is secluded and borders the Australian bush. Waterfalls, forests and streams encase the town, making the safe training for the characters easier. Most importantly, the town people do not know that their town is located directly above the ancient lost city of Veridian, which is where an ancient prophecy exists. From context, the town appears to be small and spread out, the [high] school having a small population.
The story appears to be set in the present or just a few years in the past.
The Guardians of Time are named before birth to fight against the Order of Chaos and all the 'chaos' created through them as they travel back in time to attempt to alter the future as we know it.
